Suria KLCC can be a really bustling place, generally whenever events are hold during a mall or a surrounding areas. The mall itself is home to many eateries and restaurants of each stripe, that creates eating during Suria KLCC a rather fun affair. We recently had a probability to try out an engaging opening during a coverage of MASiF 2011, pleasantness of a organisers of a festival, who were kind adequate to yield vouchers to members of a media covering MASiF 2011.
And where did we go? A old-fashioned and cosy small mark called The Coffee Spice Company. Tucked into a side of a Concourse Level of a mall, it is one of a initial eateries that we would accommodate as we enter a mall around a KLCC LRT Station. Like many new eateries, it uses a ‘kopitiam’ judgment that was popularised by Old Town Cafe, though of course, with a possess twist. The emblem of a opening is suggestive of a British colonial era, that goes in thesis with a name. Large murals adorn a executive wall of a place, and offers a ubiquitous story of coffee and spices, along with a outline of a outlet. The food credentials area is fronted by arrangement shelves that offers a preference of internal delicacies, and a caf� opposite for those who like high chairs and a some-more ‘western’ character caf� experience. The ensuing ambience is one that is loose and soothing, a really welcoming contrariety to a dispatch of a Concourse level.
So what about a food? The Coffee Spice Company offers standard Malaysian fare, that serves as a decent introduction to daily Malaysian food. Usual favourites from breakfast, lunch, tea time, cooking time, repast time, and of course, break time, are all available, that creates for a flattering endless menu. When compared with other ‘kopitiam’ judgment outlets, a patron should have no reason to protest about a miss of his favourite plate in a menu.
During a brief revisit there, we sampled what a waiter pronounced was a residence speciality, Nasi Ayam Percik, that is rice served with sharp grilled chicken. The Coffee Spice Company’s plate came not usually with a juicy square of duck though also with a square of low boiled fish, accompanied with dual side dishes of preserved vegetables. As one of a categorical dishes offered, it does probity and is indeed utterly pleasing on a tastebuds.
Being a kopitiam judgment outlet, we also attempted their toasted bread with butter and kaya, a normal favourite that went out of character as a nation grown during a 1980s. This break recognition has surged along with a whole kopitiam phenomenon, and is now a must-have menu object in any kopitiam judgment outlet. While some competence consternation either there can indeed be any disproportion in this elementary transport offering between shops, any chairman who frequently cooking toast will determine that no dual pieces of toast are ever alike. The toast was crunchy enough, though crumbled easily, creation a probability of oozing butter and kaya a really expected possiblity. The layers of butter and kaya were generous, though competence not interest to everyone’s liking.
Drinks were soya bean with weed jelly, also famous as cincau, and soya bean with weed preserve and cendol. Both drinks used brownish-red sugarine syrup, giving a splash a caramel essence and hue. These soya bean concoctions were beautifully done, with a reduction of syrup, soya bean and preserve finished only right.
We were on a flattering parsimonious report that day, so a small journey during The Coffee Spice Company drew to a tighten during this point. What we tasted was good adequate for us to cruise entrance behind again, and given we mostly visit Suria KLCC, we would contend that it is only a matter of time.
